    I arrived at the nintendo.com site to register my products and found that I have to be either Canadian or American [​IMG]. I'd like to access a lot of the extras they have and the Australian Nintendo site seems a bit behind to the American one [​IMG]. What is one to do? [​IMG]

    Such things are usually done by geolocation using your IP address, a proxy connection however will make it appear like you are wherever the proxy is and there are loads in America. Expect to take a speed hit though and depending on your proxy some sites may be blocked.
    A search engine works well for proxy lists but http://www.samair.ru/proxy/ is good for short term proxies.

    Oh and nintendo of Japan usually have some really nice bonus stuff so you may wish to consider there as well.
